COVID-19 and our societies’ reactions lay bare longstanding inequities and marginalization we must address. That's why IPSL's borders are staying OPEN! Until travel is permissible again (and it will be), IPSL Global Institute at NUNM is offering this program online. Once travel is permissible again, students may immediately shift to onsite study and service abroad.
Students will receive the same support and thought-provoking orientation and courses whether online or in person. The Community Organizing and Social Activism courses will be taught by in-country professors as are all the other elective courses. And check out this BONUS: during your online portion you can mix and match your electives taking courses of interest from multiple IPSL sites abroad!
